It's time for recommendations! First, an email from Maeve, who is looking for recommendations for books similar to The Last Hour of Gann, and another email from Bobbie, looking for romantic suspense. Bloodthirsty Jane is here to help! We also chat about what we're currently reading, and I share some of the responses to our last podcast about uglycry books and DNFing books you aren't enjoying.
Here are the books we discuss in this podcast:
I also mentioned the article about Edith Layton that Elyse wrote recently – here's a link to that, too.
Don't miss Christina Lee's brand new ebook BEFORE YOU BREAK, a beautiful and emotional New Adult romance about a bad boy on the edge—and the girl who’s about to fall hard.
A college baseball star isn't supposed to have skeletons in his closet. But Daniel Quinn is hiding a guilty past so dark he refuses to let anyone get close. Except there's something about gorgeous, studious Ella Abrams that goes beyond the electric attraction between them–something that makes him want to open up.
Ella has suffered enough heartache and guilt to fill one of her psychology textbooks, but she keeps that part of herself hidden behind a bubbly exterior. Until she receives an anonymous call while working a suicide helpline and the voice on the other end touches something inside of her that she can't ignore.
Soon Ella and Quinn's physical connection heats up, even as their deep and revealing hotline talks intensify. But by the time Ella realizes that her seductive jock and her sensitive caller are the same guy, it might be too late to save him–or to stop herself from falling too far…
Before You Break will be on sale February 18th wherever ebooks are sold.
